Businesses often forget to cater to customers with disabilities. Whether it is making special parking spots, building ramps, or creating more wheelchair-friendly infrastructure, business establishments tend to get complacent. As a result, they miss out on business with potential customers. By law, all businesses are required to fulfill the guidelines provided by Part 3 of the ADA regulations, but some businesses get by doing the bare minimum.
By distinguishing yourself as a business that cares and with a little help from the years of expertise in ADA Signs, with Competitive Signage you can make your business more accessible and inviting to all customers.
According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, business establishments and places of employments should have signs that comply with the ADA regulations to make these places more accessible for people with disabilities. Non-compliance with these regulations is met with hefty fines and prosecution, so it is best that businesses invest in installing ADA Signs to make these places more friendly for people with disabilities.
Here are three ways in which a business can spruce up their safety signs while making sure they are compliant with the existing guidelines:
- ADA Signs for people who are visually impaired need specific customization as they cannot process glare or reflection very well. By making sure that your signs have a non-glare finish and that it is easily legible for all visitors, you are making sure that your ADA signs are compatible. However, this rule only applies to indoor signs, and signs for parking or traffic needn’t comply with this rule. Spruce this up by using a premium matte finish material and make sure that the background and characters are glare-free. You can also have ADA Signs on wood-carved templates for a quaint, distinguished look.
- Make sure that all aspects of your business establishment are disability-friendly. This is an important consideration if you are looking to level up your safety signage game. Consider restroom signs, room signs, building, and elevator signs when thinking of sprucing up the ADA Signs. Make sure that the signs are highly contrasted- either white on a black background or the reverse. You can also use other contrasting colors. Increase the accessibility by adding braille elements on your signage- this makes it more accessible for visually impaired people. Our experience tells us that customers most definitely appreciate this empathetic effort in kindness and support!
- When deciding on ADA Signs for your business, make sure that you are catering to a wide audience. Have ramps installed wherever necessary, make sure that all entry points have ADA signs that accurately guide people of disabilities in and out of your business establishment. Some people with disabilities also have service dogs that accompany them, so having a sign that says ‘your establishment is pet friendly’ can go a long way in communicating to your customers that you care.
Customers will appreciate your empathic efforts of making your business more accessible and you can definitely expect higher customer satisfaction with this gesture.
